I Do Arrest Your Words!


Michael Shattner, aka Sir Pompey Martext, questions my answers*


*First of all, holy CRAP this show is all kinds of fun. Last night was our final dress (please hold your gasps of disbelief, I know the past 5 weeks have flown by) and TONIGHT we're ushering in our first real audience (and by that I mean really ushering, there's is a very good chance I will be standing at the door and handing you playbills with a smile. You're welcome.) Huzzah!

While you wait with bated breath for our 7pm curtain (P.S. come see our show. Buy your tickets now. Etc.), here's a little actor interview to tide you over. 




The elliciter of belly laughs, the wearer of red hose, the arbiter of duels duel, the master of malapropisms and prolonged comic pauses...
